December 7, 2006,
Columbus, Ohio – Retail Ventures Inc. (RVI) said it is exploring strategic alternatives for its Value City Department Stores operations, including a possible sale of the division.
Home Textiles Today reported that 2005 home textiles revenues for Filene’s Basement and Value City together totaled $144.0 million.
RVI has retained Financo and CIBC World Markets as its financial advisors in the strategic review.
